Northern Prosthetics is the only full-time prosthetics and orthotic facility north of Bangor with ABC Board Certified Practitioners. At Northern Prosthetics, we specialize in both upper and lower extremity prosthetics as well as all orthotic devices including Foot Orthotics, AFOs, KAFO, TLSOs, Cervical Orthoses, and Cranial Remodeling Helmets. Northern Prosthetics has the ability to fabricate all prosthetic and orthotic devices as well as make any modifications needed, in house, by the practitioner who did the evaluation.
What does this mean for the patient?
1. The total process for providing a new device takes a few weeks instead of several months.
2. Because we have two full-time practitioners, all modifications can be addressed immediately, any day of the week.
3. Ultimately, it means that the patient is provided with better quality care in a much more timely fashion.
This in turn results in faster rehabilitation and an over all improved quality of life.
